A bit of Americana.  The following poem is NOT mine but uttered by the mother of a lady witch who married to a mortal man.  It was one of the most popular TV series and is still so during re-runs.  It had inspired a movie starring Nicole Kidman and Will Farrel even though it was a flop at the box office for deviating from what the audience is expecting.  


The morale of the story: Never tinker anything that is highly successful!


Anyway, this came to my mind as I was heading back on a flight back to Los Angeles from Asia.  It's a beautiful piece and I encourage you to translate into your native tongue. :)


We are quicksilver,

a fleeting shadow,

a distant sound...

our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass.

We live in music,

in a flash of color...

we live on the wind and in the parkle of a star.
